August 2019 Album of the Month – The Offering’s HomeTuesday, 17th September 2019
Rare is the up and coming act that can successfully bring in some new elements to the heavy metal game. Most are content to simply push the boundaries further – more extreme, more melodic, more technical, etc. But The Offering find solace in providing an experience of masterful genre blurring. They take the best from their multi-faceted influences and bring a fresh take to the heavy metal experience. One that has plenty of energy and musical prowess, not to mention fun. As their first full-length, Home firmly establishes them as a newer force to be reckoned with, regardless of your favorite subgenre.
An excerpt from Matt Coe’s 9/10 review, which posted on August 2, 2019:
The Offering through their self-titled EP in 2017 put this former Florida/currently Massachusetts quartet on the map, a heavy/power cocktail of sounds that features multiple influences past and present, while still being quite melodic to contain numerous hooks and grooves. The follow-up full-length Home not only has a couple of member shifts (bassist Spencer Metala of Hate Storm Annihilation joining in 2018, guitarist Daniel Martinez departing to pare the lineup down to a quartet) but an added air of sophistication, confidence, and go for broke attitude to really showcase more facets of what The Offering can – for lack of a better term – ‘offer’ to the metal public.
Chances are, Home will establish The Offering as a viable younger act who bridge the gap between the established, old guard and the newer, more aggressive/modern crop of artists. Go big or go home – and as such, this is a monster of an addictive record where you can peel back new layers as you can deeper clarity of the heavy/power songs contained within.
